How to add the Facebook Share Button

On numerous occasions, our team at Facebook TabSite has been asked the question, “How can we add the Facebook ‘Share’ button to my Fan Page?” when using TabSite or on a FBML page. So, we’ve decided to give a quick overview of the code needed to use this viral sharing Facebook tool.


Why use the Facebook ‘Share’ button on your Facebook TabSite?

The Faceook “Share” button is a great way to get users to interact with your Fan Page or Personal Profile page.  When a user clicks the “Share” button on your TabSite or custom Fan Page Tab they can post a comment, link to your page, and share it with all of their Facebook friends.   How cool and easy is that to spread a message! The Share Button is a great way to virally spread content from your Facebook Fan Page and to have a message that “keeps on giving and going!”


Below is the to code needed to add the “Share” button. 

You will need to replace the Facebook URL with your Facebook Fan Page URL, and then you’ll be good to go!


<fb:share-button class=”url” href=”“></fb:share-button>


Option 2

Another great use of a “Share” button is to add it to your website!  Facebook has a great tool that allows you some customization options and then gives you the exact code you need for your website. Here is the link:  Like Mamma always said its nice to “Share”! Share

Note: To have access to the code view to embed this in TabSite, you do have to have a Pro level subscription.  So give it a try!  (And if you haven’t tried TabSite, at least give the free Profile version a go!)

  4. Hoping someone reads this ASAP. I’ve been trying to get numbers up on a facebook page that regards looking for a missing person. But numbers are rising ever so slowly. I think it might be if there was a share button. The site is Help Find Emma Fillipoff. Any suggestions?

  5. Are you posting posts and encouraging fans to share this to spread the news? Also, for $10-20 you can run a news feed ad to really extend reach to targeted geographic focus on Facebook.

  6. I have. It’s not my page. I don’t believe family has any money left to spend more on an ad. Thank you for your help.
